Comedy Double Bill

'Bouncers'  by John Godber  AND
'Shakers'  by John Godber & Jane Thornton
directed by Lloyd Spencer & Gwenefer Roskilly

Wednesday 6th - Saturday 9th March 2019

Rehearsals for Bouncers and Shakers are going very well. This double bill promises to be thoroughly entertaining, with our talented cast working hard to bring over fifty characters to life - 1980's nightlife, to be exact!


As always, it takes much more than a talented cast and production crew to produce a great show. We also need a dedicated Front of House team. Helping Front of House provides an excellent opportunity to meet our members, whilst learning more about the company and providing a very valuable contribution. Anyone interested can get in touch either through our contact form, or by contacting Lloyd Spencer directly.

Tickets are available to book through the Box Office, or anytime online!

Your Committee Needs You

Owing to a recent resignation from the committee, and the fact that we were already under strength, there are several committee membership slots available. The April AGM (details to follow in due course) is the formal opportunity to be elected onto the committee. However we also have the option to co-opt committee members at any time of the year. 

Therefore we would like to invite company members to consider putting themselves forward as committee members, with the potential to be co-opted in February. If you’ve ever considered what it would be like to get more involved in running the company, this would be a great opportunity to try it out for a few months before elections in April. If you would like to be considered as a committee member or would just like some more details, please contact either Lloyd Spencer (Chairman) or Ben Lowater (Secretary).

November Production

It's may seem a long way off, but we are already looking out to our third production of 2019.  We are very excited and can't wait to share our plans!  However, there are many details to finalise before we can.

In the meantime - and as a bit of a tease - we are looking for a creative Set Designer to work on what is sure to be a lot of fun and quite the challenge for anyone interested in this area of production. If you are interested, please get in touch.
